This week we would like to talk about Johnny Rab Clothing for our Sponsor Spotlight feature. This Nashville based company has been taking the retro clothing world by storm with their high quality, vintage inspired designs. I first heard about Johnny Rab Clothing when the name started flooding my Instagram feed. All of these gorgeous ladies were posing in their #rabgirl t-shirts and I needed to know more about this #rabgirl movement. Just as I was looking into his company, he was looking into Pinups for Patriots. Tennessee chapter State Leader, Ava Couture, heard that he was interested in partnering with PFP and decided to get the ball rolling. “I messaged him one day and said ‘Hey if you ever need any help with the PFP partnership let me know. I’m the State Leader for TN and I would be happy to help’ and that’s what started it all. We’ve been collaborating together ever since.” Soon came the announcement that we were going to attend Ink-N-Iron Nashville 2015 with Johnny Rab Clothing.
The weekend of the event came and I finally got to meet the man behind the #rabgirl movement. It can be quite nerve racking meeting someone who is doing so much for the organization you are representing. You want to make a good impression and show them equal support. My nerves were quickly at ease upon meeting John. He is very kind, passionate about his work, and easy to talk to. We chatted a bit about why he decided to partner with Pinups for Patriots and the support he has for veterans, including his father who served as a Marine. We talked about the upcoming Pinups for Patriots 5th Birthday Bash and National Conference being held at the Stratosphere in Vegas on October 3rd. Johnny Rab is sponsoring the event this year and we couldn’t be more thankful for this. He seemed surprised that I’d never been to Vegas. I know, I know! It is a hub of pinup activity and I haven’t been there. I’d kick myself, but I don’t want to scuff my heels.
We also chatted about the clothing that is currently available on his site. One of the dresses, The Ivy, is a gorgeous wiggle dress that screams “wear me to a Pinups for Patriots event!” It features a classic design and made with high quality fabric. It is conservative, stylish, and flattering to different body types. I don’t know about you ladies, but I’ve spend a lot of money on dresses that start to look a bit faded and frumpy after only a few months. Don’t we deserve something worth the money we are shelling out? Johnny Rab gives us a big ‘ol YES! Browse more items and become a #rabgirl by visiting Johnny Rab Clothing.
